HTC recently announced a permanent price drop to the HTC Vive Pro. The VR headset's price is down $200, bringing it to $599. The $599 price tag does not include the controllers, base stations, or the VIVE wireless adapter. The price drop of the headset allows it to compete with other devices such as the Valve Index.

The Vive Pro is an upgrade over HTC's popular Vive headset. It supports SteamVR 2.0 tracking sensors and has an AMOLED display with good contrast. It has built-in audio and also has an optional wireless adapter available, which allows you to play PCVR games without dealing with wires.
